There are some relationships that are far more important than anything else in life. It could be your loved ones, such as parents, siblings, or best friends. And if they aren’t with us, it’s as if a piece of you is missing. And there is nothing you can do to fill the void.

One of these moments was captured in this viral video. For years, these Australian Galahs, also known as pink and grey cockatoos, were partners. When one of them died, the other one began to mourn the loss of its mate.
